I use Adobe CC. I've been trying to add bleed to a previously saved file without bleed. When I open the file then go to >document setup< I am able to add a 1" bleed, but the red bleed line doesn't appear around my artboards once I click ok. Then when I go back into >document setup< it shows that the bleed has been saved, but it is still not visible in the art files.6 votes
As stated in the comments, to view bleeds you have to make sure you have View > Guides > Show guides option enabled.
Please comment back if the solution doesn’t work for you.

Illustrator 22.1 (64bit)
When I told Illustrator to create an artboard of 350x350 pixels, I thought it could actually do so. That was the template image size that our web designer propogated across our entire website.
Then I exported 11 images from Illustrator to .png format to re-build one of our webpages. They came out as 1459x1459. Now I will resize them in Microsoft Paint. They'll pixelate and probably look like trash. All because Illustrator can't understand "350 pixels x 350 pixels" on the Create New prompt window.

The intended way to ensure your pixel-sized document stays the same size after export is to use the default screen resolution — 72 PPI.
If you set anything else, Illustrator will scale the image accordingly (as if the 'Resample' option in Photoshop is ticked when you resize an image).
There is no way to write a custom resolution AND maintain the desired size at the same time.
The reasoning behind this behaviour is that the resolution value is supposed irrelevant when an image’s intent is Screen or Web. An image can have no resolution value stored in it at all, it’s just an optional coefficient, and then different viewers and editors suppose a value on their own — usually 72 PPI (Mac-style) or 96 PPI (Windows-style).
Unlike other editors, Illustrator has a continuous range for all measurements units. One pixel is considered to be equal one point, and a point…
I am having issues with the alignment of the image on the artboard. It seems the rectangle I used to cover the artboard isn't lining up. I am not sure if this is a problem or I simply don't know how to fix it2 votes
The artwork has a small black dot on the right side, far away from the artboard. Watch closely at the right side of your 11×17.jpg image to notice it.
And export options were probably without ‘Use artboards’ tick.
P.S. Please always provide the file you have problems with!
This is a new issue: normally the X and Y axis reset when you click on an alternate artboard but recently, it's maintain the X and Y of the first artboard. My sample is a 4"x4", 4-artboard layout, and the shape is on artboard 2, horizontal to artboard 1.1 vote
The problem got solved by enabling artboard rulers instead of global ones via View > Rulers menu.
BUG: Some how the artboard is rotated and unable to keep it straight. The entire document is rotated and it is difficult to work that way. Can this be fixed ASAP?

Illustrator can rotate the view. Perhaps you accidentally did that with adding Shift while panning with Space held?
It can be reset with the field in the bottom left corner, next to Zoom level, or with the View > Reset Rotate View command.

Hi, when I used to move my objects on artboard, there used to be lanes and alignments automatically showing me when two objects on the artboard are in alignment with a green line. However, I can't see that feature anymore, it just happened since yesterday. very frustrating. Is this a bug, or is this due to some settings issue?1 vote
In case someone can’t see these, check these:
1. Disable Snap to Grid
2. Enable Smart Guides
3. Make sure you have Spacing Guides option turned on in Preferences > Smart Guides
line and text look jagged and I tried all the settings change by researching in the internet, but nothing fixed it. this problem is persisting for the last two days.

Please upgrade to a GPU to resolve this. By design lines on CPU are aliased, GPU rendering will fix this.
Illustrator CC 22.0.1
Align to Artboard: X and Y position not established within the active artboard but retains the global X and Y position.
When selecting and copying the X position of vertex (A) on active artboard (A), then activating another artboard (B) and selecting vertex (B). When pasting the X position for vertex (A) from artboard (A) to vertex (B) on artboard (B) it pastes the global X position. The previous version retained the local artboard X position when align to artboard was activated. Which is very helpful in maintaining consistency between artboards.1 vote
This happens most probably because the rulers mode set differently.
You can toggle it with View > Rulers > Change To Global/Artboard Rulers command.
Please reply back if it helps.
Illustrator 2018 is not letting me create a single asset from ungrouped layers. In the previews version the functionality was simple, you just select as many ungrouped layers and it would create a single asset.
Is this is a new fancy bug?1 vote
You can create single asset from un-groupped layers by holding Opt/Alt key while adding the asset.
This is intended change in behaviour in Illustrator 2018, creating multiple assets in a single add operation was not possible earlier.
